How Long Does It Take To See Buccal Fat Removal Surgery Results?

By February 21, 2022 No Comments
Buccal fat pad removal surgery is slowly becoming one of the most popular facial plastic surgeries for the younger adult population. The procedure involves removing some or all of the buccal fat pad in the cheeks for a slimmer appearance. Usually, it is ideal for patients who genetically carry more fat in their cheeks and have not seen it go away with age or weight loss. So, how long does it take to see buccal fat removal surgery results?   Occasionally, you may notice some immediate results. However, these will likely become distorted by swelling and potential bruising. Within two weeks, most side effects should have subsided enough to return to work and most of normal life. Though, the final results will likely not yet be evident.    By months three and four, many patients begin to see more significant results. Often, patients will be happy with their results at this point, though the body may still have healing to do. In general, plastic surgery results are considered final after nine to twelve months. At that point, you can confidently observe buccal fat pad removal surgery results.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3565.
